Ce soir le vent qui frappe à ma porte Me parle des amours mortes Devant le feu qui s' éteint Ce soir c'est une chanson d' automne Dans la maison qui frissonne Et je pense aux jours lointains {Refrain:} Que reste-t-il de nos amours Que reste-t-il de ces beaux jours Une photo, vieille photo De ma jeunesse Que reste-t-il des billets doux Des mois d' avril, des rendez-vous Un souvenir qui me poursuit Sans cesse Bonheur fané, cheveux au vent Baisers volés, rêves mouvants Que reste-t-il de tout cela Dites-le-moi Un petit village, un vieux clocher Un paysage si bien caché Et dans un nuage le cher visage De mon passé Les mots les mots tendres qu'on murmure Les caresses les plus pures Les serments au fond des bois Les fleurs qu'on retrouve dans un livre Dont le parfum vous enivre Se sont envolés pourquoi? {au Refrain} ***** I WISH YOU LOVE (Que Reste-T-il De Nos Amours ?)

Goodbye, No use leading with our chins, This is where our story ends, Never lovers, ever friends. Goodbye, Let our hearts call it a day, But before you walk away, I sincerely want to say: I wish you bluebirds in the Spring, To give your heart a song to sing; And then a kiss, but more than this I wish you love. And in July, a lemonade, To cool you in some leafy glade; I wish you health and more than wealth, I wish you love. My breaking heart and I agree That you and I could never be, So with my best, my very best, I set you free. I wish you shelter from the storm, A cozy fire to keep you warm; But most of all, when snowflakes fall, I wish you love. I wish you bluebirds in the Spring, To give your heart a song to sing; And then a kiss, but more than this I wish you love. And in July, a lemonade, To cool you in some leafy glade; I wish you health and more than wealth, I wish you love. My breaking heart and I agree That you and I could never be, So with my best, my very best, I set you free. I wish you shelter from the storm, A cozy fire to keep you warm; But most of all, when snowflakes fall, I wish you love. (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - August 2005) *****
